Rick - were you refering to the typed in 'w' or the little 'w' that is part of the build sheet format?
Box 44 has four "sub boxes" for paint color codes
LW -lower body
UP- upper body
On your 1970 build sheets has anyone ever seen anything in box no. 60 SPEC. ORD. ?

Thanks for the response . I"m askingwhat does the W part of the build not the W typed in for stripes. Under the LW I have 19 Under UP I have B, Under ST I have W and under W I have 19 . The latter is what i"m asking.
Joe58, The car is an SS car. Box 45 has AO for wheels. this an Atlanta built car with docs cowl hood LS6 . Could this mean the centre of the wheels were black instead of charcoal,this is definitly a hard one.
Rick- This is a good one....the 19 under the W does not indicate your centers are black....if this was the case, my LS6 wheels would be dark blue in the center!! My box shows 28 28 - 28.
The saga continues...
Dave, I"ve seen a build sheet from Kansas and in box 45 it read 5 AO. On my build sheet it reads just AO. Did all SS come with 5 SS wheels or maybe we got 4 wheels and the trunk wheel is painted in my case 19 and yours 28?
Just a guess but I think the "w" you guys are talking about has something to do with vinyl tops and not wheel colors.I have a small collection of 70 build sheets and it seems the vinyl top cars have a code in this section of box 44.This does not appy to convertibles.If you notice a convertible and a vinyl top car both have a code in box 26 but from what I have noticed in my small collection is that the vinyl top cars have a code under the "w".Maybe elcamino can look into this deeper with his larger collection.
Rick- Like elcamino says, the SS came with 5 SS wheels, although I believe the spare did not come with trim ring and center caps, as the hold down bolt went thru the center, and the wheel would've layed on the ring. Some sheets are coded a little differently, but the codes are the same. Like AO-5 and just AO, some frames are coded XU and some XU-R.
The W would have nothing to do with the top, as the top was coded under "UP" in box 44.
elcamino, I'm still collecting sheets to send. My LS5 car was coded box 44- 28 28 W 28, box 45-AO, LS5 with cowl Ind.
